want to put that out there, put them on the defensive. and by the way, if they reject a fair deal, it makes it easier for us to deal with our own politics because we've showed that the problem is more than tehran. >> david ignatius, the same question i asked richard haass. do you think the iranians will take a threat from the united states more seriously than saddam hussein, or noriega or other dictators took in years past? >> the iranians have believed for years, certainly ever since i visited tehran in 2006, that the u.s. is not prepared to go to war to stop iran's nuclear program no matter what we may say or threaten. they just don't think -- they think it would be crazy for us to do it and that we're not crazy. i think an additional problem for president obama in making his policy by any means necessary credible is that this presidential campaign showed clearly to me the absolute defining moment was the third debate on foreign policy. it showed that the american people do not want to go to war again. the two candidates, romney and obama, were identical in expressing quite rest

's not vince lombardi. and rex makes it sound like he's won five championships. rex, as a defensive assistant, that doesn't count as a championship ring. but sparano was a bad hire as offensive coordinator. he's an offensive line coach. he's not an offensive coordinator. obviously tebow has caused some distraction. and sanchez, some. >> some. >> some. it's too much. too much. >> sanchez is awful. >> it's going to be a tug-of-war between rex ryan and mike t tanenbaum playing out behind the scenes. >> i think woody would be afraid to fire those two. i think he's joined at the hip with tanenbaum. >> that was a public humiliation, the entire nation watching after thanksgiving dinner, everyone saw that. >> it's the funniest play of all time watching sanchez fumbling, runs into the offensive lineman. it's actually funny. >> it's a broken play. so he misreads the play after calling it in the huddle five seconds before. he gets confused. he runs into the posterior of a lineman. >> it's funny. >> falls down and fumbles the ball! >> the posterior of the lineman was thrown into him by vince wilfork. it'

defense under control and spend these wasteful wars have added trillions. that's one place. we're going to have to get the health care costs down and right now our health care costs are between 50% and 100% higher than in any other country. and so we have this great opportunity to reduce health care costs, but that requires pretty deep reform that we've ducked so far because that requires going after the private health insurance industry which has been reaping huge profits. so we have to get the health care costs down. that will save a lot on the budget. >> okay. thank you very much. and, rick, let's eat now. the food snob diet. >> i do actually think -- >> that should have been the cover. >> maybe that should have been the cover. >> give peas a chance. >> i'll consult with you guys the day before. >> that's nice. that's good stuff right there. >> i have to talk about it here. >> we'll be right back. >> have a great thanksgiving. you won't find a "home rule" on every corner, a "stag provisions" down every block, or a "hugh and crye" in every town. these are the small businesses of ameri

the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >> well, i think it's a smart move for john mccain to take the meeting. they're boxed in. this is not a fight they want right now. it was a stupid fight to pick. they put themselves into a corner and now they've got to figure out how to get out of that corner. and they're going to do it. they're going to talk to her and senator mccain will be gracious to her. and, again, all the questions that are being asked about be
